Mayhem # 2495448
A rigger of shibari and kinbaku inspired rope bondage.
Which is to say: binding women in beautiful, exciting, and challenging ways - trying to frame a few of those moments. Sometimes, I'm lucky enough to catch the right bounce of light off model and rope - and paint the 1,000 words.
But it's not just about trying to capture some image. A great session is a bit like yoga, sort of a dance, and physically/mentally demanding. The journey from point A to B to C and the experience along the way is as important as the snapshots for the album.
I work in my studio in Rogers Park on Chicago's far north side. A typical session is 2 to 3 hours of rigging & shooting, plus the requisite meet & greet and review beforehand with a few breaks in between.
Models are responsible for their own (limited) makeup, hair, and wardrobe. I write and provide a call sheet in advance based on the model's application. It will outline the scenes and specific wardrobe requirements.
I offer a flat fee stipend in consideration for a model's media release. There is no hourly rate available. Stipend options are available on my model application.
If we haven't rehearsed, I don't like performing for an audience.
Safety is both of our concern. So let's talk about that. And tell someone where you are going and when to expect you back. Even have them drop you off and pick you up. And do please speak with any of the models with whom I've worked.
My studio is a big cozy room - a third is odd. If an audience is a must, let's make it a party! I will schedule accordingly. I'll invite some guests to watch. Refreshments and hors d'oeuvres may be served. Admission may be charged.
Include in your application that you want to bring a guest.
I take this work seriously and expect the same. Good communication and clear confirmations are important to me. I'm in the studio two days a week and enjoy booking my calendar well in advance.
Shit happens, we know. But in my time with MM, I've seen a number of models no-call/no-show or cancel at the last minute with the lamest of excuses. I don't mind if you've never done this nor if you do it all the time. If you can't make a commitment to be somewhere (on time) a week from next Thursday, please don't apply.

I recommend working with any of these folks if you get the chance - not a bad apple in the bunch:
